At a work conference, Alison is surprised to run into Ben, the Marine who saved her from a disturbed father a few weeks ago. Drawn together by the trauma techniques they’re are learning, Alison and Ben hone them in an intimately physical and emotional private session in which she recalls the night her four-year-old son Gabriel drowned. Quickly deducing that she blames herself, Ben comforts her and they come close to having sex... When Alison’s ex Cole meets Ben, he’s disturbed to realise they’re dating. Ben had mentioned being married with kids and begs Cole for time to tell Alison the truth. However, Cole’s distrust of Ben builds as he realises his marriage to Luisa is a mistake.
